Al Ministro della Istruzione
Valeria Fedeli

Scopriamo dalla Stampa che è stata diramata una circolare per "liberalizzare" l'uso degli smartphone in aula.
Come mai questa decisione ?
Ci pare in direzione diametralmente opposta rispetto alla sempre maggior consapevolezza della inadeguatezza delle norme e limiti di esposizione ai campi elettomagnetici.
Ci riferiamo ancheai recentissimi:
10 July, Cyprus : WiFi has been removed from elementary schools and initiatives to educate children and families about health hazards from cell phones and wireless radiation are made, including brochures and videos.

24 Mai, Belgium : A well documented proposal of a resolution to recognize electrohypersensitivity in Belgium has been submitted to the Senate by three of its members.
Italia: sono sate pubblicate tre recenti cause  legali, in cui è stata confermata la relazione causale tra uso del telefono cellulare e cancro. ...
Ma, cosa più assurda, la Sua Circolare è in di-sintonia con un recente atto governativo, del Ministero della Ambiente (1) con titolo Piano d’azione per la sostenibilità ambientale dei consumi nel settore della Pubblica Amministrazione, che aggiorna i Criteri ambientali minimi per l’affidamento di servizi di progettazione e lavori per la nuova costruzione, ristrutturazione e manutenzione di edifici pubblici  (2)
tra i criteri guida che debbono essere assunti al fine di raggiungere una sostenibilità ambientale nella acquisizione ed uso di strutture ed attrezzature della Pubblica Amministrazione, si fa cenno – per la prima volta – di Inquinamento elettromagnetico indoor.
Infatti nel paragrafo 2.3.5.4 si parla espressamente di come si deve evitarel’inquinamento elettromagnetico da basse frequenze, predisponendo i quadri elettrici, i contatori e le colonne montanti all’ESTERNO dello stabile e di posare i cavi elettrici minimizzandone l’uso ;
ma anche, al fine di ridurre l’inquinamento elettromagnetico da radiofrequenze, passare ad opzioni alternative al Wifi come le connessioni via cavo oppure con PLC.
In attesa di un chiarimento,
inviamo distinti saluti

Accademia USA Otorinolaringoiatri: istruzioni per l'uso di smart phone

La associazione dei medici otorinolaringoiatri americani ha emesso una lista di 6 'istruzioni per l'uso' finalizzati a ridurre il DANNO legato allo uso di smartphone
Vedere https://goodmenproject.com/featured-content/6-ways-that-your-smart-phone-may-be-impacting-your-health-snsw/

1) l'uso del telefono può dare problemi sulla funzionalità dell'udito, non legati al volume dell'audio: uso quindi di auricolari od altro che tenga lontano il telefono dall'orecchio

2) è stato determinato che il telefono contiene germi e batteri in genere legati alla scarsa igiene delle mani anche ... uscendo dal bagno

3) problemi sulla sicurezza ad es. dell'utente minorenne:  controllo da parte dei genitori !

4) il telefono può generare neoplasie per cui tenerlo lontano dal corpo, e si specifica anche per gli uomini di allontanare possibili tumore al petto se il telefono è tenuto nella tasca della camicia  superiore o della giacca

5) l'uso massiccio del telefono porta a depressione, disturbo del sonno, 'phantom ringing' che è la sensazione delle vibrazione del telefono anche se inattivo

6) effetti sulla fertilità maschile, già studiata e confermata da molti studi, legati al posizionamento del telefono vicino ai testicoli

Come si crea una commissione tecnica 'garante' ... gli interessi economici !

FCC è l'ente federale americano sulle Comunicazioni che dà le regole sui limiti di esposizione alle RF.

Ha creato quest'anno una commissione di esperti (30) che deve supportare l'ente per le regole relative ad internet ad alta velocità , ad es. la 5G.

Guarda caso i 3/4 dei membri scelti sono rappresentanti delle società di telecomunicazioni e sistemi wireless, come AT&T, Comcast, TDS, etc.  Idem per gli  invitati esperti di provenienza nota da centri di sviluppo già ben orientati sulle scelte da rendere.
Viene riportato in questo articolo
http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/41628-fcc-packs-broadband-advisory-group-with-big-telecom-firms-trade-groups

Nel gruppo di lavoro sulle municipalità solo 3 su 24 membri erano stati destinati a rappresentanti locali.

Il Presidente di questi comitati, designato dalla Presidenza Trump, ha il chiaro compito di facilitare la implementazione della tecnologia 5G con un forte incremento di antenne e di inquinamento elettromagnetico !




When the Federal Communications Commission went looking this year for experts to sit on an advisory committee regarding deployment of high-speed internet, they took the often favoured route and loaded the 30 member panel with corporate executives, trade groups and free-market scholars. More than three out of four seats on the BDAC are filled by business-friendly representatives from the biggest wireless and cable companies such as AT&T Inc., Comcast Corp., Sprint Corp., and TDS Telecom. Crown Castle International Corp., the nation’s largest wireless infrastructure company, and Southern Co., the nation’s second-largest utility firm, have representatives on the panel. Also appointed to the panel were broadband experts from conservative think tanks who have been critical of FCC regulations such as the International Center for Law and Economics and the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.

Il 'punto' sulla 5G


qui dal sito EMFields 

15th August 2017                 5G Update

There is currently a lot of concern being expressed on websites and emails about millimetre-waves (mm-waves) and 5G. It is very important to realise that these are not the same thing.

5G is a new, more technically advanced, version of the long-term-evolution (LTE) wireless communications system that effectively started with 3G. Over time it will use a variety of different carrier frequencies and modulations to transmit information. Some of these carrier frequencies will pass through buildings much more easily than others. All will be absorbed by living beings.

The rollout of 5G will be done over a number of years. Suitable 5G carrier frequencies have different properties with some carrying data further being better at passing through walls and other obstacles, while others (mm-waves) can only be used over short direct distances but can carry vast amounts of information quickly (e.g. for downloading HD movies). Because of this, and because no available mobile phone handsets currently are capable of mm-wave frequencies, the initial public network roll-out of 5G will be using carrier frequencies less than 6 GHz.

For short distance communication between mobile device (tablet or phone) and the nearest base station, higher frequencies from 24 GHz to 90 GHz (mm-waves) will be tested in locations around the world in the next few years. They will require different, more advanced, cellphone handsets and tablets. The electronic chips for these are only at an experimental stage at present.
The new cellphones will be more complicated to manufacture and the signals will be more difficult to measure accurately.

Later 5G mm-wave systems will require the deployment of millions of small low-power base stations close to people’s homes and it is questionable whether that will be affordable. In most areas where fibre-optic cable has been laid it is more likely to be implemented by integrating 5G pico-cell base stations in the routers that people have in their homes. This has been done to provide widespread WiFi in several countries. BT (2017) has a network of over 5 million WiFi hotspots across the UK provided by their BT broadband subscribers – and all subscribers can use any of them to connect to the internet.

It is most unlikely that there will be a widespread rollout of any 5G networks before about 2020. The EC hopes that viable commercial existing-band (up to 6 GHz) 5G networks will be in operation by the end of 2020. The first public mm-wave networks will follow a few years later and are likely to be in high-value city business areas. We are working on instruments for detecting the mm-wave frequencies, but they are unlikely to be available for sale before 2019. There are antenna, sensor and power consumption issues that make it difficult to make cost-effective wide-band measurements at these frequencies.

In the meantime microwaves at the 5G frequencies which will be used in most areas until at least 2020 (and probably 2023) can be measured using our Acoustimeter, ACOM2 instruments and our new RadAware alarm. By the time it is necessary to measure the mm-wave frequencies we will be offering new measuring instruments.

Two further pages follow with more technical information.
Further information about 5G

There are already 71 internationally identified potential 5G bands between 453 MHz and 6000 MHz (6 GHz) – many of these are currently used for mobile communication, nor are they available in all countries.
Microwaves at these frequencies can be measured using our Acoustimeter, ACOM2 instruments and our new RadAware alarm.

5G is a method of modulating an RF/microwave carrier with complex QAM subcarriers. ‘Microwaves’ are not defined as such, but are generally considered to be wavelengths between 1 metre and 10 mm (300 MHz to 30 GHz). Millimetre-waves (mm-waves) are much higher frequencies that have a much shorter effective range and are not good at penetrating buildings but offer much greater data bandwidth. Their wavelengths are longer than infrared waves, but shorter than normal ‘microwaves’.  They were considered to be wavelengths in the range from 10 mm (30 GHz) to 1 mm (300 GHz), though the 24.25 GHz to 27.5 GHz band is being prioritised across Europe as the first high frequency band for 5G and is being included in the mm-wave part of the spectrum.

It is all very early days in the real world roll-out. In July 2017, Apple was awarded a licence to design, build and test experimental 5G mm-wave handsets, specifically for the FCC approved 28 and 39 GHz bands. Chipmaker Qualcomm has announced that samples of its 5G ‘snapdragon’ X50 28 GHz chipset will be available late in 2017 and hopefully in production quantities by the end of 2018.  In July 2017, Arqiva and Samsung started a single trial of a fixed (not mobile) 28 GHz experimental one-base-station mini-network in central London.

‘5G for Europe: An Action Plan’ – published by the EC in 2016 states:
“The designation of new frequency bands above 6 GHz is on the agenda of the World Radio Conference 2019 (WRC-19), based on a list of candidate bands identified at WRC-15, subject to ITU studies, with the aim of targeting the widest possible global harmonisation.”

The EC hopes that: “every Member State will identify at least one major city to be "5G-enabled" by the end of 202018 and that all urban areas and major terrestrial transport paths have uninterrupted 5G coverage by 2025”
In the meantime, the UK Regulator, Ofcom, has worked with other European spectrum regulators to identify three key new bands for 5G in Europe: 700 MHz, 3.4-3.8 GHz, and 24.25-27.5 GHz. Many network operators are planning to use some of the 800/900 MHz GSM frequencies for 5G that will penetrate buildings and some existing 3G bands (e.g. 1800 MHz) will also convert to 5G.
Ofcom is already planning an auction for some time in 2017, to sell off spectrum in the 2.3GHz and 3.4GHz bands. It also is reclaiming the 700–800 MHz spectrum from Digital Terrestrial Television and wireless for future 5G usage, which should be complete by the second quarter of 2020. Elsewhere in Europe, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has already globally allocated 200MHz of 3.4-3.6GHz spectrum and is also committed to making the ex-DTV 694-790MHz band available in Europe for 5G.
In August 2017, the FCC announced that it is looking into how 3.7-4.2 GHz; 5.925- 6.425 GHz.
However, the imagined future of 5G lies in the high frequency millimetre-wave spectrum, for which there is far more capacity. This technically encompasses the 30-300 GHz range, but it more commonly refers to bands above 24 GHz. Ofcom has identified 24.25-27.5 GHz as the so-called "pioneer band". More commonly simplified to 26 GHz, this band is seen as the most likely candidate for a true global 5G standard.
There is not likely to be widespread deployment of mm-waves until at least 2021 and probably nearer to 2025 other than in a few high-value densely populated areas.

Some 2G (GSM) networks will continue to be supported by some companies in the fairly long-term. They still offer the most effective rural coverage at fairly low power for voice and text messages. They are also widely used for the large number of existing automated alarm and data systems that will not easily be able to be converted to LTE. However, AT&T, Telstra, Optus and the 3 Singapore operators, have already turned off their 2G (GSM) networks to clear frequencies for 4G and 5G. In most countries, 3G is much more likely to be phased out before 2G (GSM), as 3G/UTMS morphed into 4G/LTE and now the first standard for 5G/LTE (which is actually 3GPPP-12, passed in 2015) and with future technical enhancements: 3GPPP-13 (2016), 3GPPP-14 (2017) and 3GPPP-15 planned to be released in September 2018. However some networks (like Verizon, AT&T and KT) are just going ahead and creating their own ‘bespoke’ versions of 5G in order to try to be the market leaders.

Water is a very good absorber of millimetre waves. Wet cement will absorb almost all the mm-wave radiation impinging on its surface. Humans absorb 100% of the energy of millimetre waves which hit them. 
Whether mm-waves will penetrate homes depends on many factors. Above 30GHz the waves can slip through long slots such as those around PVC window frames as the metal cores are surrounded just by PVC extrusions. This makes it difficult to shield at the scale of housing. Metal reflects millimetre waves as effectively as it reflects microwaves, but mesh is much less useful, as the smaller waves more easily slip between the wires in a mesh.

5G Wireless Technology: Millimeter Wave Health Effects

The emergence of 5G, fifth-generation telecommunications networks, has been in the news lately because the wireless industry has been pushing controversial legislation at the state level to expedite the deployment of this technology. The legislation would block the rights of local governments and their citizens to control the installation of cellular antennas in the public “right-of-way.” Cell antennas may be installed on public utility poles every 10-12 houses in urban areas. According to the industry, as many as 50,000 new cell sites will be required in California alone. 

Although many major cities and newspapers have opposed this legislation, the potential health risks from the proliferation of new cellular antenna sites have been ignored. These cell antennas will expose the population to new sources of radio frequency radiation including MMWs.

5G will employ low- (0.6 GHz - 3.7 GHz), mid- (3.7 – 24 GHz), and high-band frequencies (24 GHz and higher). In the U.S., the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has allocated “low-band” spectrum at 0.6 GHz (e.g., 600 MHz), “mid-band” spectrum in the 3.5 GHz range, and 11 GHz of “high-band” frequencies including licensed spectrum from 27.5-28.35 GHz and 37-40 GHz, as well as unlicensed spectrum from 64-71 GHz which is open to all wireless equipment manufacturers.

Prior to widespread deployment, major cell phone carriers are experimenting with new technologies that employ “high-band” frequencies in communities across the country. The “high-band” frequencies largely consist of millimeter waves (MMWs), a type of electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths of one to ten millimeters and frequencies ranging from 30 to 300 GHz (or billions of cycles per second). 

The characteristics of MMWs are different than the “low-band” (i.e., microwave) frequencies which are currently in use by the cellular and wireless industries. MMWs can transmit large amounts of data over short distances. The transmissions can be directed into narrow beams that travel by line-of-sight and can move data at high rates (e.g., up to 10 billion bits per second) with short lags (or latencies) between transmissions. The signals are blocked by buildings, and foliage can absorb much of their energy. Also, the waves can be reflected by metallic surfaces. Although antennas can be as small as a few millimeters, “small cell” antenna arrays may consist of dozens or even hundreds of antenna elements.


What does research tell us about the biologic and health effects of millimeter waves?

Millimeter waves (MMWs) are mostly absorbed within 1 to 2 millimeters of human skin and in the surface layers of the cornea. Thus, the skin or near-surface zones of tissues are the primary targets of the radiation. Since skin contains capillaries and nerve endings, MMW bio-effects may be transmitted through molecular mechanisms by the skin or through the nervous system. 

Thermal (or heating) effects occur when the power density of the waves is above 5–10 mW/cm2. Such high-intensity MMWs act on human skin and the cornea in a dose-dependent manner—beginning with heat sensation followed by pain and physical damage at higher exposures. Temperature elevation can impact the growth, morphology and metabolism of cells, induce production of free radicals, and damage DNA.

The maximum permissible exposure that the FCC permits for the general public is 1.0 mW/cm2 averaged over 30 minutes for frequencies that range from 1.5 GHz to 100 GHz. This guideline was adopted in 1986 to protect humans from acute exposure to thermal levels of radiofrequency radiation. However, the guidelines were not designed to protect us from nonthermal risks that may occur with prolonged or long-term exposure to radiofrequency radiation.

With the deployment of fifth generation wireless infrastructure (aka 5G), much of the nation will be exposed to MMWs for the first time on a continuous basis. Due to FCC guidelines, these exposures will likely be of low intensity. Hence, the health consequences of 5G exposure will be limited to non-thermal effects produced by prolonged exposure to MMWs in conjunction with exposure to low- and mid-band radiofrequency radiation.

Unfortunately, few studies have examined prolonged exposure to low-intensity MMWs, and no research that I am aware of has focused on exposure to MMWs combined with other radiofrequency radiation.

Although biologic effects of low-intensity MMWs have been studied for decades, particularly in Eastern Europe, study results are often inconsistent because the effects are related to many factors including the frequency, modulation, power density, and duration of the exposures, as well as the type of tissue or cells being investigated.

Results vary across studies—MMWs have been shown to induce or inhibit cell death and enhance or suppress cell proliferation. Some studies found that the radiation inhibits cell cycle progression, and some studies reported no biologic effects (Le Drean et al., 2013)

A review of the research in 2010 noted that “A large number of cellular studies have indicated that MMW may alter structural and functional properties of membranes.” Exposure to MMWs may affect the plasma membrane either by modifying ion channel activity or by modifying the phospholipid bilayer. Water molecules also seem to play a role in these effects. Skin nerve endings are a likely target of MMWs and the possible starting point of numerous biological effects. MMWs may activate the immune system through stimulation of the peripheral neural system (Ramundo-Orlando, 2010).

In 1998, five scientists employed by U.S. Army and Air Force research institutes published a seminal review of the research on MMWs. They reported:

“Increased sensitivity and even hypersensitivity of individual specimens to MMW may be real. Depending on the exposure characteristics, especially wavelength, a low-intensity MMW radiation was perceived by 30 to 80% of healthy examinees (Lebedeva, 1993, 1995). Some clinical studies reported MMW hypersensitivity, which was or was not limited to a certain wavelength (Golovacheva, 1995).” 
“It is important to note that, even with the variety of bioeffects reported, no studies have provided evidence that a low-intensity MMW radiation represents a health hazard for human beings. Actually, none of the reviewed studies with low-intensity MMW even pursued the evaluation of health risks, although in view of numerous bioeffects and growing usage of MMW technologies this research objective seems very reasonable. Such MMW effects as alterations of cell growth rate and UV light sensitivity, biochemical and antibiotic resistivity changes in pathogenic bacteria, as well as many others are of potential significance for safety standards, but even local and short-term exposures were reported to produce marked effects. It should also be realized that biological effects of a prolonged or chronic MMW exposure of the whole body or a large body area have never been investigated. Safety limits for these types of exposures are based solely on predictions of energy deposition and MMW heating, but in view of recent studies this approach is not necessarily adequate.” (Pakhomov et al., 1998)

Microbes are also affected by MMW radiation. In 2016 a review of the research on the effects of MMWs on bacteria was published (Soghomonyan et al., 2016). The authors summarized their findings as follows:

“…bacteria and other cells might communicate with each other by electromagnetic field of sub-extremely high frequency range. These MMW affected Escherichia coli and many other bacteria, mainly depressing their growth and changing properties and activity. These effects were non-thermal and depended on different factors. The significant cellular targets for MMW effects could be water, cell plasma membrane, and genome….The consequences of MMW interaction with bacteria are the changes in their sensitivity to different biologically active chemicals, including antibiotics….These effects are of significance for understanding changed metabolic pathways and distinguish role of bacteria in environment; they might be leading to antibiotic resistance in bacteria.”

Changing the sensitivity of bacteria to antibiotics by MMW irradiation can be important for the understanding of antibiotic resistance in the environment. In this respect, it is interesting that bacteria [that] survived near telecommunication-based stations like Bacillus and Clostridium spp. have been found to be multidrug resistant (Adebayo et al. 2014).”  (Soghomonyan et al., 2016)


In sum, the peer-reviewed research demonstrates that short-term exposure to low-intensity millimeter wave (MMW) radiation not only affects human cells, it may result in the growth of multi-drug resistant bacteria harmful to humans. Since little research has been conducted on the health consequences from long-term exposure to MMWs, widespread deployment of 5G or 5th generation wireless infrastructure constitutes a massive experiment that may have adverse impacts on the public’s health.

Abstract

Millimetre waves correspond to the range of frequencies located between 30 and 300 GHz. Many applications exist and are emerging in this band, including wireless telecommunications, imaging and monitoring systems. In addition, some of these frequencies are used in therapy in Eastern Europe, suggesting that interactions with the human body are possible. This review aims to summarise current knowledge on interactions between millimetre waves and living matter. Several representative examples from the scientific literature are presented. Then, possible mechanisms of interactions between millimetre waves and biological systems are discussed.

In recent years, research into biological and medical effects of millimeter waves (MMW) has expanded greatly. This paper analyzes general trends in the area and briefly reviews the most significant publications, proceeding from cell-free systems, dosimetry, and spectroscopy issues through cultured cells and isolated organs to animals and humans. The studies reviewed demonstrate effects of low-intensity MMW (10 mW/cm2 and less) on cell growth and proliferation, activity of enzymes, state of cell genetic apparatus, function of excitable membranes, peripheral receptors, and other biological systems. In animals and humans, local MMW exposure stimulated tissue repair and regeneration, alleviated stress reactions, and facilitated recovery in a wide range of diseases (MMW therapy). Many reported MMW effects could not be readily explained by temperature changes during irradiation. The paper outlines some problems and uncertainties in the MMW research area, identifies tasks for future studies, and discusses possible implications for development of exposure safety criteria and guidelines.


Ramundo-Orlando A. Effects of millimeter waves radiation on cell membrane - A brief review. Journal of Infrared, Millimeter, and Terahertz Waves.  2010; 31(12):1400–1411.

Abstract

The millimeter waves (MMW) region of the electromagnetic spectrum, extending from 30 to 300 GHz in terms of frequency (corresponding to wavelengths from 10 mm to 1 mm), is officially used in non-invasive complementary medicine in many Eastern European countries against a variety of diseases such gastro duodenal ulcers, cardiovascular disorders, traumatism and tumor. On the other hand, besides technological applications in traffic and military systems, in the near future MMW will also find applications in high resolution and high-speed wireless communication technology. This has led to restoring interest in research on MMW induced biological effects. In this review emphasis has been given to the MMW-induced effects on cell membranes that are considered the major target for the interaction between MMW and biological systems.

Ryan KL, D'Andrea JA, Jauchem JR, Mason PA. Radio frequency radiation of millimeter wave length: potential occupational safety issues relating to surface heating.  Health Phys. 2000; 78(2):170-81.

Abstract

Currently, technology is being developed that makes use of the millimeter wave (MMW) range (30-300 GHz) of the radio frequency region of the electromagnetic spectrum. As more and more systems come on line and are used in everyday applications, the possibility of inadvertent exposure of personnel to MMWs increases. To date, there has been no published discussion regarding the health effects of MMWs; this review attempts to fill that void. Because of the shallow depth of penetration, the energy and, therefore, heat associated with MMWs will be deposited within the first 1-2 mm of human skin. MMWs have been used in states of the former Soviet Union to provide therapeutic benefit in a number of diverse disease states, including skin disorders, gastric ulcers, heart disease and cancer. Conversely, the possibility exists that hazards might be associated with accidental overexposure to MMWs. This review attempts to critically analyze the likelihood of such acute effects as burn and eye damage, as well as potential long-term effects, including cancer.

Abstract

Millimeter waves (MMW) or electromagnetic fields of extremely high frequencies at low intensity is a new environmental factor, the level of which is increased as technology advance. It is of interest that bacteria and other cells might communicate with each other by electromagnetic field of sub-extremely high frequency range. These MMW affected Escherichia coli and many other bacteria, mainly depressing their growth and changing properties and activity. These effects were non-thermal and depended on different factors. The significant cellular targets for MMW effects could be water, cell plasma membrane, and genome. The model for the MMW interaction with bacteria is suggested; a role of the membrane-associated proton FOF1-ATPase, key enzyme of bioenergetic relevance, is proposed. The consequences of MMW interaction with bacteria are the changes in their sensitivity to different biologically active chemicals, including antibiotics. Novel data on MMW effects on bacteria and their sensitivity to different antibiotics are presented and discussed; the combined action of MMW and antibiotics resulted with more strong effects. These effects are of significance for understanding changed metabolic pathways and distinguish role of bacteria in environment; they might be leading to antibiotic resistance in bacteria. The effects might have applications in the development of technique, therapeutic practices, and food protection technology.

Low-intensity electromagnetic field (EMF) of extremely high frequencies is a widespread environmental factor. This field is used in telecommunication systems, therapeutic practices and food protection. Particularly, in medicine and food industries EMF is used for its bactericidal effects. The significant targets of cellular mechanisms for EMF effects at resonant frequencies in bacteria could be water (H2O), cell membrane and genome. The changes in H2O cluster structure and properties might be leading to increase of chemical activity or hydration of proteins and other cellular structures. These effects are likely to be specific and long-term. Moreover, cell membrane with its surface characteristics, substance transport and energy-conversing processes is also altered. Then, the genome is affected because the conformational changes in DNA and the transition of bacterial pro-phages from lysogenic to lytic state have been detected. The consequences for EMF interaction with bacteria are the changes in their sensitivity to different chemicals, including antibiotics. These effects are important to understand distinguishing role of bacteria in environment, leading to changed metabolic pathways in bacteria and their antibiotic resistance. This EMF may also affect the cell-to-cell interactions in bacterial populations, since bacteria might interact with each other through EMF of sub-extremely high frequency range.

I ragazzi Millenial più isolati. depressi e ... suicidi un correlazione con gli smartphone ?

Vi sigerisco di leggere questo articolo
https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/09/has-the-smartphone-destroyed-a-generation/534198/

ma, ancor di più, di seguire questa intervista
http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/smartphones-making-generation-unhappy/
(se attivate i sottotitoli - in inglese - si segue molto bene)

Trattano i risultati di studi psicologici comportamentali sulla generazione 'millenial' (nati dopo 'anno 2000) .
Le conclusioni sono che nel 2011-2 si è avuto un anno di discontinuità su vari indicatori comportamentali tra cui il numero di suicidi, mai rilevata - come incremento - dagli anni 1930 in poi.

Quest ultima generazione è più isolata, è attiva sui social ma poca attenta al rapporto diretto, fa meno sesso (riduzione del numero di gravidanze delle adolescenti!) ... ma c'è un'impennata del numero di suicidi.
I ricercatori hanno utilizzato i 'big data' disponibili per trovare  fenomeni correlabili:  ad es. non quelli economici ... alla fine hanno individuato il forte incremento della vendita di smartphone negli USA 2010 - 2011


Una frase:

i ragazzi 18enni di oggi sono molto simili ai 15enni di 10 anni fa !

Quindi contenti i genitori ?   una volta (ma anche oggi) si mettono i bambini di fronte alla TV per tenerli buoni, ora c'è lo smarphone, ...     ma con quali implicazioni  psico socio eoconomici ?

Conferma diagnosi strumentale per la elettrosensibilità

Recentissimo lavoro pubblicato dai ricercatori Heuser in una qualificata e rinomata rivista internazionale  Reviews on Environmantal Health     , qui il link,  

è di grande rilevanza perché  dimostra una correlazione diretta tra sintomatologia da elettrosensibilità ed il risultato di scansione con risonanza magnetica e poi  positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)

Gli Autori riportano e dimostrano valori anomali in alcune aree del cervello e di fatto propongo che questo protocollo possa essere utilizzato come strumento di diagnosi della elettrosensibilità

Se non erro, anche il Prof Belpomme in Francia utilizza delle scansioni di risonanza e la PET per il suo protocollo.

Passo importante anche se non so quanto una persona elettrosensbile si senta pronto ad affrontare questi test.

'Ravvedimenti' di governi, istituzioni e tribunali sugli effetti sulla salute delle RF


Vi trasmetto questo utilissimo documento creato da un amico olandese che raccoglie - con i relativi link ai documenti originali - che riportano interventi governativi o di istituzioni nazionali ed internazionali, ma anche  sentenze emesse da tribunali,   che richiedono ed introducono tutele e restrizioni allo uso di RF

Attenzione agli smartphone in mano ai bambini ... video

Un video che deve allertare i genitori a non far giocare i bambini con smartphone, ad es. per la 'realtà virtuale'

Intervista al Prof Angelo Levis

... illuminante intervista ad Angelo Levis (che è appunto un ... luminare) ...

ecco il link  


Parla di conflitto di interessi,  della relazione tra ricerca e finanziamenti, le vertenze legali anche con riferimento agli ultimi (isolati) successi.

Quando il tumore al cervello 'becca' un uomo di potere ... allora se ne parla ...

Qui c'è il link ad un lungo articolo sul giornale Atlantic in cui parte dal caso clinico del Sen. John McCain.   

L'articolo riporta in modo abbastanza obiettivo lo stato dell'arte compreso anche le posizioni scientifiche discordanti per arrivare ad un salomonico  ... usare gli auricolari!

Interessante sempre leggere i commenti in cui ci sono tanti sfegatati 'negazionisti' ... qui occorrerebbe presidiare sempre per aggiungere notizie e posizioni diverse

Proposta di legge ferma dal gennaio 2014 alla Camera per eliminare la misurazione media della esposizione ai CEM, fatta sulle 24 otre

Grazie a Openparlamento (www.openparlamento.it) scopro che è stato depositato da deputati di 5Stelle (On. Crippa)  la proposta di legge C 1631:

https://parlamento17.openpolis.it/atto/documento/id/29002

che punta ad abrogare la assurdità sia per il principio di precauzione che per la operatività degli operatori di misurare il valore di esposizione non in base ad una media dei 6 min. ma nell'arco delle 24 ore.   Il deputato conferma nella relazione che questa modifica operativa ha bloccato chi divrebbe monitorare, come l'ARPA. 

Nella proposta di legge interviene con  a una riduzione del valore massimo di potenza delle singole antenne, imponendo come limite massimo 7 watt anziché 10 watt. 

Peccato che è stato depositato il 26.9.2013 e assegnato alla Commissione Ambiente il 31.1.2014....


In che modo possiamo intervenire ?
Far sentire ai parlamentari ad es. al Presidente della Commissione Ambiente la urgenza che questa tematica venga affrontata ?  

Le nostre associazioni possono fare questo ?  ci sono dei sostenitori che vogliono impegnare a scrivere, sollecitare, ... ?

...  come dire ... andare oltre il piangersi addosso ... ma rimboccarsi le maniche ?! ...

Sospensione contributi a radio-tv abusive di Volturino(FG).

Ministero Sviluppo Economico                                    Corte dei Conti                             Ministero delle Finanze    
Comune Volturino                          Procura Repubblica FG

Oggetto:Sospensione contributi a radio-tv                                     abusive di Volturino (FG).

In qualità di rappresentante legale dell’Associazione “ElettrosmogVolturino” , il sottoscritto Gagliardi Antonio abitante in via S. Martino, 2         nel      denunciare                  uno stato di assoluta anarchia che caratterizza gl'impianti radiotrasmittenti di Volturino (FG) su Toppo della Guardia, pluridenunciati sin dal 1986, chiede l’intervento di codesto Ministero a cooperare con il Comune di Volturino perché si imponga il trasferimento delle strutture in località Scordarulo, come impone il PRG del comune dal 2003, ma irresponsabilmente disatteso.
Si scoraggi un inutile ricorso al TAR, in quanto il Consiglio di Stato, con sentenza n. 2200/17,  pubblicata l’ 11/5/2017, nel respingere l’appello proposto da Mediaset a Rocca di Papa (RM), ha affermato che “il quadro normativo postula che le attività di radiotrasmissione vengano esercitate attraverso strutture idonee e non contrastanti con la normativa urbanistica e con quella paesaggistico-ambientale.”

Non solo il PRG, ma tutto uno stato di irregolarità impone l'urgenza del        risanamento:

a)     Opere abusive in area agricola
b)     Uso di energia elettrica con documentazione falsa avvenuta nonostante l' assenza di concessione edilizia e scambio della stessa energia tra le varie emittenti, molte sconosciute allo stesso Ministero
c) Evasione ICI/IMU-TASI
d) Statistica medica denunciante una elevata casistica di malattie: insonnia, ipertensione, diabete, tumori e malattie di carattere neuropsichiatrico tenute prudentemente occultate dalle autorità sanitarie
e) finanziamenti illeciti.
Per quest'ultimo punto i cittadini di Volturino chiedono come sia possibile che una situazione di illegalità amministrativa che caratterizza gl'impianti consenta il finanziamento da parte dello Stato a cronici abusivi ed evasori fiscali, nonostante decennali denunce.

Dunque il Ministero sospenda immediatamente i contributi, in quanto illegittimi e revochi i contributi concessi negli anni.                                   
Obbligando gli abusivi alla restituzione di quanto percepito fino a questo momento, rivalutato del tasso legale, prescritto oltretutto anche   dalla                L. n. 448 del 23/12/1998, co 3.
Imponendo, altresì, l'onere del trasferimento a carico dei gestori degl'impianti poiché superano i limiti di emissione elettromagnetica di circa 70 Vm nell'area degl'impianti e di circa 10 Vm in via Verdi e via San      Martino   di        Volturino.                  (art. 28   co7 Dlgs177/05)

Quanti soldi rubati ai cittadini italiani e di Volturino per ricevere un corrispettivo di malattie da parte di un numero superfluo di emittenti, inerpicate su tralicci imperiosamente anarchici.                                                  
Denunciati e mai perseguiti?
Soldi che dovevano essere impiegati per uno studio epidemiologico approfondito e invocato da decenni, ma che vengono, contra legem, somministrati a mafiosi delle telecomunicazioni.                                     

Diffusori di stupidità, informazioni manipolate e di emissioni elettromagnetiche anche di notte, quando i pazienti, ma veramente pazienti di Volturino, vedono negare il diritto a un buon sonno.
